speed

I live in a very rural area where cable tv still does not run. The only internet option I ever had was dial-up. That was until this afternoon!
A small company in the next county has been putting up towers for broadband service all over southern Middle Tennessee and today they reached me. It is unreal how much different the internet is now. Twitter actually loads for me. Pages with lots of photos before never really fully loaded. Everything took forever to do.
Now I will be able to participate more in things, like replying to blog posts when I want to. I am so excited!

My irises have started blooming. If I had to say I had a favorite flower it would be bearded iris. I have about 50 different colors of them and several hundred plants.
I love their scent and their delicate petals.

Orange Fish Magnet

For one week only my mica shift orange fish magnet is on sale for 20% off. I love creating with the mica shift technique. It makes these swirls appear to be 3 dimensional when they are actually flat and smooth.
